Re: CONFIG SETTINGS

Martin gave you the answer on the system colors.  Creo will automatically load a config.pro file from these locations, in this order:

 

  1. The text folder in the Creo installation.  By default this is something like C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 3.0\M150\Common Files\text
  2. The user's home directory, as defined by windows environment variable
  3. The "start in" folder as defined in the properties for the shortcut used to launch Creo.

 

Put it in any of those folders and it will load automatically.  If Creo finds more than one, they are applied cumulatively.  If any options conflict, the last one loaded is applied.

 

Lastly, there is a special config file that you can use named config.sup.  It must be in the text folder and, if found, will be loaded first. Any options found in that file cannot be overridden by other files or by the user after startup.  Used for company standards, but it's wise to keep this file to a minimum.

Re: CONFIG SETTINGS

Hi,

add system_colors_file option into config.pro, for example

system_colors_file F:\users\mh\tmp\creo1_parametric\syscol_crp_mh2.scl
